Upside-Down Bird

Photograph by Hideta Nagai, My Shot

Birds returning to roost for the evening can sometimes be a frantic and chaotic event. Some miss their targets, while neighborhood squabbles are frequent on the crowded wire. This one (the hanging one) landed slightly off-balance and found itself in an unflattering position. The moment was fleeting and the bird quickly released itself to attempt another landing.
